Katherine Jenkins has slammed reports she has been dropped by her record label due to falling sales and expensive ‘diva demands’.
The 32-year-old Welsh singer signed a £5.8 million three-album contract with Warner Music Entertainment in 2008, said to be the biggest classical recording deal in history.
The Daily Mail claimed executives at the label decided not to renew her contract after the singer requested up to £1,500 a day to be spent on her styling, hair and make-up during promotional and live events.
Katherine, currently on tour in Japan, wrote on Twitter: “I can confirm that I’m moving record label as I’ve reached the end of my three album deal w/ Warners.
“I’m super excited about where I’m going next but am currently sworn to secrecy. This is a happy time for me personally and as an artist so do not be concerned by nonsense reports in the press.
“I personally am getting sick of all the hatred and venom coming from one source. It’s totally unnecessary.”
She later added: “Well, it’s been a long day of rehearsals here in Japan. Time to take my £1,500 worth of make up and my diva demands to bed #Haters #Lies”
Katherine’s last album, This is Christmas, released last year, peaked at number 26 in the UK album charts, while her previous album for the label, Daydream, reached number six.
She competed on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing With The Stars, last year as part of a plan to crack America
